Any move to seek SC’s opinion on President’s term is a move to delay Presidential polls: GL Peiris

SLPP GL 700 01

Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna Chairman Prof G.L. Peiris has warned that any move to seek an opinion from the Supreme Court will be seen as an attempt to extend the term limit of President Sirisena.

He made this statement addressing the media at the SLPP Head Office.

GL Peiris said:

“Any move to seek a clarification from the Supreme Court on President Sirisena’s term will be seen as a move to delay Presidential elections. We cannot accept as this will hinder the democratic rights of the people. The Supreme Court had already announced its decision, and everyone should respect that decision.

If SLFP tries to delay the Presidential election, that could affect the ongoing talks between SLFP and SLPP, as such a move could reduce the credibility of SLFP and its genuine intention of forming a political coalition.

The country had already faced challenges due to the delaying of Provincial Council Elections, and any attempt to delay the Presidential Election would cause more damage to the country.

If they try to delay elections, we will inform all Heads of foreign missions based in Sri Lanka, and explain to them their attempts to stay in power.”
